Assault crimes|domestic violence

It is a common misconception that if the alleged victim in a domestic violence or spousal abuse case asks that the charges be dropped, then the case will be dismissed. However, once the police arrive at a domestic violence or spousal abuse call, it is no longer up to the parties whether there will be an arrest. If the police see visible injuries, they will make an arrest. The alleged victim becomes a witness, and it is up to the prosecutor to determine if charges will be brought.

It is imperative for anyone accused of domestic abuse or domestic violence, particularly of assault and battery, to contact an attorney immediately. Once the prosecutor has decided to file charges after an arrest for domestic violence or spousal abuse, there are myriad conditions of probation that can seriously affect your life. A large number of domestic violence and domestic abuse cases are filed as the result of a divorce or custody battle. While Law Office of Barry K. Newman limits its involvement to criminal representation, we can work closely with your family law attorney to prevent the criminal system from becoming a weapon in family court.

Drug crimes
Law Office of Barry K. Newman is experienced at providing legal representation to those accused of various drug offenses, as well as those facing asset forfeitures because of a drug charge. Drug charges cover a broad range of offenses from the less severe, like simple possession, to the more serious offenses, such as participation in an ongoing drug-related criminal enterprise or manufacturing and distributing drugs. Even minor charges carry the risk of serious penalties upon conviction.

The Fourth Amendment of the Constitution protects an individual against unreasonable searches and seizures of his or her person or property. A search may involve an inspection of the person or his or her surroundings or property, and a seizure refers to taking the person or property into police custody. In drug cases, the arrest and evidence used to support a conviction generally result from a search and seizure. If the government did not adhere to constitutional limits in its conduct, the evidence against you may be deemed inadmissible.

As experienced trial lawyers, we can advise you on whether the evidence leading to a drug charge arguably resulted from an improper search or seizure. We answer all other questions regarding the criminal justice process in drug cases. Our investigative and defense tactics can pave the way for reduced sentencing and alternative sentencing options, such as diversion to drug rehab, house arrest with electronic monitoring, or probation with drug testing.
